Snack mix for young and young at heart

I’m home tonight from the restaurant for a rest, hoping to have a busy weekend.  I was sitting here wondering why I am so broke right now but it was time to renew my liquor license and pay the dram shop insurance and quarter taxes.  All things that are needed to stay open but not fun to shuck out the money to pay.  I had someone talk to me about closing and being the dietary manager at a local nursing home, but I hate to give up the fight for my dream.  They say it take three to five years to show profit, I am not in debt for my business just running day to day. ...more

Oreo Custard

I happened to have a lot of extra egg yolks from making some angel food cake and I decided what better thing to do with egg yolks than make custard! My absolute favorite ice cream is cookies and cream followed closely by peanut butter panic. I reasoned that since cookies and cream is my favorite ice cream, then why not try it in a custard? I can truly say that I'm glad I did! Custard has such an amazing creaminess to it, add the fantastic flavor of Oreos and instantly I'm in a sugar coma/heaven! ...more
